67 years old. Ordered bike in Dec 2105. Assembly started on Dec 30, 2015. Received bike on March 17, 2016. Took first ride on April 2, 2016. For me this is BMW number 21 with 15 of those bought new. Today bike has 11130 miles. Has not used a drop of oil. Changed initial set of Z8 tires at 7600 miles. Installed the Roadtec 01 tires. Both sets have performed well but have yet to run even 1 mile in the rain so no idea how they will perform in wet conditions. And no, I'm not a fair weather rider after 45 years on BMW motorcycles. Biggest single improvement I've made to the bike was relocating the GPS above the gauges using the Vortex bracket from Tony T at Hightide Technologies. I just glance down with my eyes and not even move the head to see the GPS. Best $250 spent on the bike so far. Best fun item added is the Akrapovic Exhaust. What a hoot that is to listen to when down shifting and when I decide to use some throttle. I just finished a 3319 mile ride to the BMWMOA National Rally in Hamburg, NY and below is some data recorded during the trip. From the bikes gauge is below Average moving speed was 47 mph Engine run time was 71 hr 31 min Bike moving time was 67 hr 48 min From GPS is below Maximum speed attained was 91 mph Average moving speed was 46 mph Total miles difference between GPS Trip Meter 1 and 2 and Trip A/B GPS tripmeter showed 3319 miles and the bike trip A and/or B showed 3392 miles or a 2.2% difference that is what I had calculated my speedo and odometer are optimistic compared to GPS numbers. I believe the trip meter 1 and 2 get their information from the GPS and Trip A and/or B get the information from the bike Fuel consumption Bike showed 49 mpg using premium (91-93 octane as generally no ethanol added) My calculated number based on actual gallons was 47.8 mpg Most surprising thing I learned was the bike clock is adjusted when one crosses a time zone. The GPS changes as soon as you cross a time zone but to get the bikes clock to change you must shut down the bike and then when you turn on the ignition to start the bike again the time adjusts on the bike clock. This bike is real dream to ride. I've not made any ergonomic adjustments to the bars, seat or pegs and may not need to based on the first 3 plus months of ownership. Maybe a Sargent seat some day in 2017.
